The week in security: Snapchat, Dropbox deny culpability for photo, account leaks

Some 100,000 photos taken from Snapchat users weren't the service's fault, although some observers were seizing on the leak to argue for an improvement in security by Snapchat and other online services. Ditto Dropbox, which was also denying it was to blame after hackers published what they claimed were excerpts from 7 million Dropbox credentials; the cloud-storage giant blamed a third-party service for the leak, but security experts were still using the event to push their case for users to adopt two-factor authentication – particularly given that cloud security and ubiquitous identity for cloud services is still over a year away.

Review: Mobile Device Management

With the rise of mobile computing -- first via laptops, then smartphones and now tablets -- the IT landscape changed within the enterprise. No more was IT just about the local network, WANs and security for desktops and servers: it now had to incorporate mobile devices, spanning all manner of manufacturers, operating systems, and platforms and to do so without compromising security. The sheer volume of devices and the different software they run is a natural antithesis to network security. Yet, these devices are integral to the way business works today, and so the IT department must adapt.

Addressing the security risks of BYO device

The head of security hastily leaves the meeting without excusing herself. Her body language indicates that it is an important call. As she walks back in, all eyes in the room subliminally pose the same question. Without further prompting, the head of security says: “The CEO wants to know why she can’t watch a YouTube video on her iPad. It’s against policy, but we have to make it happen. While we’re at it, she also wants to be able to access her email and calendar on her iPhone”. This actually happened at a large financial institution.
